[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Volcan de Colima, also known as Volcan de Fuego is part of the Colima Volcanic Complex, consisting of Volcan de Colima, Nevado de Colima and the eroded El Cantaro, listed as extinct. It is the youngest of the three and as of 2015 is one of the most active volcanoes in Mexico. It has erupted more than 40 times since 1576.
Despite its name, only a fraction of the volcano's surface area is in the state of Colima. The majority of its surface area lies over the border in the neighboring state of Jalisco, toward the western end of the Eje Volcanico Transversal mountain range.

Hello Pedro,
A wonderful presentation of this still active volcano. Lovely scene showing the rich green grasses in the foreground and the volcano and low cloud formations behind. Everything is in fine focus and the exposure is just right.
I took a shot of an active volcano while in Nicaragua, but have yet to post it.

Hello Pedro,
Amazing natural phenomenon! Since 16th Century it has been corrupted more than 60 times! One of the most active.
Quite well captured that moment. Destructive mood!
Thanks for sharing such rare incident.
